Recovering from the just plain weird CHISTMASTIME IN LARRYLAND, TAILGATE PARTY is a return to form for the current king of blue collar comedy. This is the Larry the Cable Guy that was there from the beginning, cranking out a steady stream of so-dumb-they're-fun jokes with some steadfast social conservatism dropped in to rally the audience (anyone campaigning against global warming might want to sit this one out). Even Larry realizes that "Git R' Done!" is played out by this point, but his usual catchphrases "Lord I apologize," "I ain't never," and "That's funny, I don't care who you are" are all here, adding that "aw shucks" touch designed to make the more offensive material--his meeting with Hillary Clinton, at a urinal--easier to excuse. Adding a little extra excitement is the huge audience which at 53,000 strong makes this the largest recorded comedy show to date.
